Templot2      version: 205c      build: 5794      19-June-2012

the program executable file name has changed from templot2.exe to  templot_2.exe

If you have created your own shortcuts they will need to be changed.

bug-fix: the warning if running multiple instances of Templot was not showing. Fixed.

move peg on background template: A new function has been added to the peg/align tools menus for a background template. This is primarily intended for use when it is desired to link a group of templates to the notch:

The normal operation of this function is put the notch under the peg after moving it to the new position. If you want to move the peg on the background template without putting the notch under it, hold down the SHIFT key while clicking the sub-menu item.

Notice that the current peg position (CTRL-5 TXP in this case, boxed yellow) is greyed out in the sub-menu -- moving the peg to its existing position would be meaningless.

I've listed as many peg positions as seems sensible in the sub-menu. If you want to move it to some other position it will be necessary to delete the background template to the control template, and store it again afterwards, as previously. Or you could set one of the other peg positions as the user-defined position.

mouse action toggles:

Additional mouse action toggles have been added:

Clicking the hollow triangle symbol on the mouse action panel now toggles between these mouse actions:

F7  ~  F8  mouse actions (shift position / rotate the control template)

SHIFT+CTRL-F7  ~  SHIFT+CTRL-F8  mouse actions (shift position / rotate a group of templates) (or \  ~ / keys )

F9  ~  F10  mouse actions for a half-diamond (V-crossing angle / K-crossing angle)

F9  ~  SHIFT-F12  mouse actions for a gaunt turnout (V-crossing angle / gaunt offset)

SHIFT+CTRL-F3  ~  SHIFT+CTRL-F4  mouse actions (transition curve start / transition length) (or [ ~ ] keys )

adjust 1st end  ~  adjust 2nd end  mouse actions for the ruler tool

adjust 1st radius  ~  adjust 2nd radius  for the F6 mouse action on a transition curve template

orbit 1st radial centre  ~  orbit 2nd radial centre  for the CTRL-F5 (or 5 key) mouse action on a transition curve template

For all other mouse actions, clicking the hollow triangle symbol swaps back to the most recently used mouse action. By this means you can set up a temporary toggle between any two mouse actions.

store & background:

When the control template is stored and copied to the background (INSERT key), it will now remain hidden only briefly, and will then reappear over the background template. You can of course hide it again if you wish (HOME key).

For more experienced users there is a new option not to have the control template hidden. It's on the options menu on the storage box. Untick this menu option:

This setting is included in your program preferences.

Note that even with this option unticked, on a large track plan the control template will disappear momentarily while Templot re-draws the screen with the new background template.

This option is ignored when working in Quick Mode.
